Sustainable Neighborhoods Program
Your neighborhood. Your ideas. Your home.
City of Lakewood Sustainable Neighborhoods Program The City of Lakewood, Colorado Sustainable Neighborhoods Program gives residents the opportunity to become active partners in making Lakewood a vibrant and sustainable community. Neighborhoods participating in this unique certification program use guidance from City staff to organize workshops, projects and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhood and reduce residents' ecological footprint. Participating neighborhoods earn program credits for their efforts and, depending on the number of credits earned in a given year, they may receive City designation as a “Participating Sustainable Neighborhood” or an “Outstanding Sustainable Neighborhood” from the City.
Prior to hosting a workshop or before beginning work on a credit-eligible initiative, participating neighborhoods should fill out the project proposal form. Please include any requests for City assistance when submitting the proposal.
The Lakewood Sustainability Division at the City of Lakewood is pleased to participate in the Sustainable Neighborhood Network. This program supports Lakewood neighborhoods in deepening their sustainability efforts, while getting support and recognition from the City.
Stay Informed! The program sends out monthly updates to each neighborhood participating in the program, as well as periodic announcements to all Lakewood residents about application solicitations, program milestones, and City-wide events.
